For me....It's always the simple things that give me pleasure. Less is more?
How could you go wrong with this recipe. A Cannoli without all the fuss. It can't get
any better. I hope you will agree. Once you bite into the crispy, sugary bread-
topped with a creamy ricotta filling, pistachios and dark chocolate your taste buds
will be singing for you. Serve as a appetizer or dessert!
Thinly slice a baguette, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush
with softened butter and sprinkle with salt and sugar. Bake at 425 degrees until
lightly golden, about 7 minutes. Let cool slightly.
Beat 1/2 cup of ricotta, 1/3 cup confectioners sugar and a dash of vanilla extract.
Beat with a hand mixer. Spread on toast rounds. Top with chopped pistachios and
shaved chocolate. Dust with confectioners sugar.
